Awesome, Jodi! The list is nigh complete ...


@EMPPhotography, the Sir David is about 30 minutes from the airport. Taxi is fine, but I can probably fetch peeps if they arrive at reasonable times and my schedule allows. Let me know closer to the time.

Just a quick round-up from the attendees - what kind of equipment would you be bringing?


35mm, medium format? Nikon/Canon, others?

I booked (I think) our room at Sir David...can someone tell me a VAT tax is?  Is that something you get back at the end of your trip???

Value Added Tax, as Steve said, a sales tax.  Some countries give back some or all on leaving, some don't.  Not sure here.

Yes, value added tax at 14% on goods and services. Some items exempted like basic foodstuffs. Beer unfortunately not. When claiming back at the airport, take the cash or charge your Visa or Mastercard with the payout. Mail me directly if you need any other info at jaco at wordsource dot co za.

I'm shooting with my Canon 5D11. Thought I would be able to get a sailing yacht to shoot on, but the owner sold the boat, building a bigger one and moving it to Spain. The nerve of them huh? lol

I think we can pretty much take it as read that those dates will stand. They were chosen to dovetail with Istock's other official events following a month or so later. Those who started booking accommodation and flights were perhaps a little quick off the mark, but I don't see anything changing.
